Damage type(s) and Attack Speed influence combat. The attack style of the weapon in relation to the combat environment is also important. Consider both when choosing weapons to wield.


Boosts and Penalties are both considered "abilities" in general. Many items don't have any special abilities. See the Abilities page for details. Some enemies are immune to certain status conditions - see individual status pages for details.

The Catalyzer is a 2-star handgun.


An advanced alchemical armament adapted from Gremlin mining and demolition devices. Catalyzer bullets envelop the enemy in an energy field that explodes after taking damage.

Energy field only explodes when contacted by charged shot.


Basic Attack

Fires a very slow moving blue projectile up to 9 squares away, allowing up to 3 shots before reload. Bullets from this gun tags any enemy it touches.

Charge Attack

Fires a very slow moving energy orb that has a range of 9 squares. The recoil from the attack pushes back the player's Knight 2/3 of a square when firing. If the enemy is struck by a charge attack from this weapon while the orb is in orbit, it will detonate, damaging and knocking back the target and all nearby enemies. Having an enemy tagged with multiple orbs will increase the size of the explosion. Any undetonated orbs will expire after 20 seconds. Orbs that are not yours are not restricted to your own gun, meaning any player with any level of the Catalyzer can detonate the orbs.

Below table shows the approximate charge time in milliseconds:

The following damage values represent the weapon at its completed level, without any UV or bonus from other equipment, and are listed as a range found from the first to last floor of each stratum.

Normal shots will do only 1 point of damage against all enemies.

Previously, this weapon would produce the circling orbs with the charge attack, which were then able to be detonated with the regular attack. This was reversed with release 2014-12-03.
